New Curation Policy & Updated Rules For Slothicorn

in #slothicorn5 years ago (edited)

We are excited to see so many new artists joining our community and we are now receiving almost 80 posts per day. However, this increased number of posts is making impossible for curators to upvote extraordinary artworks with 100% weight and adding to this, our VP is not allowing us to upvote every post. (Original artwork by Artists). Keeping this in mind, we have decided to change our curation policy. Before we explain our new curation policy, we would like to show some statistics so that you all get a clear idea about what we have done so far and why we have to adopt this new method of curation.

Number of Posts Received

The total number of posts we received in November, 2017 was 4 and in December 2017, it was 32. However, you can see the huge increase in the number of posts we received in the last three months. We received 2,422 posts last month (80 Posts Per Day), 967 posts in February, 2018 and 1697 in March, 2018.

Number of Upvotes Given by Slothicorn

Month Number Of Upvotes Average Upvote Weight
November, 2017 6 100%
December, 2017 220 80.24%
January, 2018 311 66.79%
February, 2018 888 51.10%
March, 2018 821 40.34%
April, 2018 1326 23.23%

You can see from the above table that our average upvote weight is constantly decreasing with the increase in posts and eventually, it will be impossible for us to check and upvote every artwork before it's payout is released.

New Curation Policy

From now, we will be upvoting 4 outstanding posts (1 of them would be curator's favorite) with full 100% weight and 13 posts with 50% upvote who meet the following criteria.

How To Be Considered For A Slothicorn Upvote

  1. All art genres will be acceptable except for music and photography at this time. Some possible art forms: drawing, painting, animation, video, film, cryptographic puzzles, macrame, sewing, fabric, environmental art, sculpture, street performance, graffiti, collage, food art, comics, puppetry, opera, comic video series.
  2. Add the Creative Commons Attribution License if you want let others to use your art without imposing any restrictions.
  3. If you want to retain the full copyrights, add this statement! Copyright @username - All Rights Reserved
  4. You must include every possible detail to prove that the art is created by you. This can be done by sharing pictures of your art in progress (Example) or through a video.
  5. If you're sharing your previous work, you need to write some details about your artwork along with your picture holding the artwork. If it's a video, then you can share the Youtube link and write your Steemit username in the description of the video (Youtube)

Thanks for the information. Truly the slothicorn tag was abused.

This is good news! I noticed the decreasing percentage upvote and knew it must be because of the popularity of Slothicorn increasing... This was inevitable.

Thanks for the update, good rules, makes the artist work harder with love of course, so we dont rush into it.

Interesting, I'll keep the new guidelines in mind :)

Thanks for the update !

PS: isn't the Slothicorn missing the tip of his horn in the new logo ?
I think I remember seeing the logo in different colors, so the tip might have been the same black as the background ?

You have a good eye, @pbock. Lemme talk to Stella about this!

hehe, it's one of my more favorable mutations ;)

Thank you @slothicorn...

excellent new healing policies😊, I feel very well, and I congratulate them for the growth they have had, which speaks very well of their management🎨 💪. I hope you keep growing, I always appreciate your support👏 🎁 .

great idea. :-)

woaaah, i'm very happy to see many artists who began to move here. It's great to be able to grow up with @slothicorn, really this new policy will spur me to continue to produce a much better and more dancing content.

Nice work for all curators @slothicorn, I love you all slothicornians :*

Thanx for upvoting my artwork, Bond. I was pleasantly surprised and really appreciate the gesture.

I also appreciate the rule change although I was unaware of them before being a minnow.

However, is it possible to post my website link to my artwork because what I've been posting here on Steemit is my previous artwork from 2013 - 2016. Also, a few are in galleries, so I won't be able to hold my paintings when posting to prove it's my own work. And believe me, I would take/get no pleasure of stealing someone else's work and pretending it's mine. I'm sure some people do, but that's not who I am as a person.

Besides, I really don't want that much exposure of myself/face/mug here on Steemit or any other websites unless I feel it relevant to a story.

All I want to do is show my art and other works to the Steemit community and not revealing myself each time.

If I had to hold up my painting to prove it's my own work, that would require me putting on makeup,
getting dressed before I did so which would be time consuming and a waste of tme. hehe

Some people just don't want to be famous!

If you respond in my favor, that would be great, but if not, thank you.

Have a great evening!

Thanks for the info. It's very nice the new curation policy it helps to find out who's fake and who's genuine artist or who will be given an upvote for their effort. Congrats and more power to slothicorn fam.


Thx you for information and long life @slothicorn, bravo!

Thank you for your consistent support to all the artist on this community. I have read the new guidlines👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻 I love you guys peace ya’ll

Greetings, @slothicorn... thank you for your support ... it seems to me that your new healing policy is interesting to know, it is very important that you emphasize that the work must be original.

Thanks for the continuous support to newbie artists such as myself. I hope to continue producing more quality content. I would be very much delighted if you could try and check my blog lmao

excelent work team @slothicorn In the same way I put myself to the order because in addition to being an illustrator I am a literature professor so I can collaborate in any activity that they need. We are seeing each other <2

Oh great, thanks for your support. It helps many artists to remove their frustration. Cordial greetings for this inspiration.

Aha! I can finally use the slothicorn tag! 🎉🎉🎉 Two months too late but better late than never! 😅

Thank you so much for the information it help us a lot <3
